, megan's law and the man who tortured and killed her, his parents tried to get help for him and they couldn't. and a lot of this goes back to the 1980's, when we looked at rights for the mentally ill and i believe they should have rights to refuse treatment, but if you suffer from an illness -- i'll give you example, most of the mentally ills do not pose a hazard to people but certain elements do. and you cannot make these people take their medication and then we shut down the institutions and put people out in the street for community care. and these are the types of people that when they get into delusions, they are not going to come in and seek that care. so you have problems. you also have problems -- the school shooting in newtown is terrible, but i would like to know what went on in that home. what went on with mr. lanza and his mother? there's not enough information out there yet. and we're going off proposing this ban and that ban and whatever, all i see is that mental illness and care for the mentally ill seems to be getting short changed. the other point i'm concer
. the past few times we've invited someone from the department of justice the federal law mandates all federal agencies shall cooperate fully with the commission. they won't send to testify at any time in the past couple of years. so it kind of the allies at least one false myth and that is that the military doesn't take this issue very seriously. so after trying to compliment you, i did want to -- i think to the vice admiral to get up to speed on some of the issues some of the biggest improvements for the kind of career tracking that i think you'll have the lead on in the media and those of us that are -- i was a very brief litigator but prosecutors and other litigators you learn to be a great lawyer by watching the great council, criminal defense working side by side, then having them available to counsel you and for the c-span viewers who may not know why if you could elaborate and explain, as i've been able to understand it there were incentives for those that entered the job corps to be assigned prosecutors but they were to be stationed elsewhere and wasn't quite the rewards of a
rights must be absolute, our laws fair, our national beauty preserved, the powerful must not persecute the weak, and human dignity must be enhanced. we have learned that more is not necessarily better, that even our great nation has its recognized limits, and that we can neither answer all questions nor solve all problems. we cannot afford to do everything, nor can we afford to lack boldness as we meet the future. so, together, in a spirit of individual sacrifice for the common good, we must simply do our best. our nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. and we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. to be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. we will not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our nation earns is essential to our strength. the world itself is now dominated by a new spirit. peoples more numerous and more politically aware are craving, and now demanding, their place in the sun--not j

"obama vows aggressive agenda." "he is looking beyond the fiscal battle set to dominate the coming weeks." and then a side story, an analysis. "the president is set to fight over a new to do list." "the inauguration was not only grayer, he sounded less like a man ready for lofty flights and more ready for ground battles." and then here is "the washington post," this morning. there had lyme, "we must act." -- there had line, "we must act -- their headline, "we must act." "the new york times," this morning, "a limitless vision." "speech gives quiet goals center stage." "our jou
stressful moments for the authorities. as a result, we have more than 13,000 military and law enforcement personnel, ready for this event. we have snipers on the roofs. we have biological and chemical units prepared to deal with whatever comes up. we have a high degree of surveillance. satellites zooming in on the mall, as well as hundreds of surveillance cameras, to watch potential suspects. as one official told me last night, we have no specific threat. but we have to be ready for anything, george. >> and i know they've been preparing for this for a year. they've been locking the buildings on the parade route. they've been locking the garbage cans on the parade route. repaved the road. they are taking no chances. we have an incredible team of presidential savvy with us this morning. i want a quick word from two of them sitting with us here. let's start with matthew dowd, contributor to abc news. you have contributed to a combine, as well. both sides of the aisle. what does it take for a president to take a second inauguration and make it soaring? >> well, it's a much different situation
, you can't hear this case. you trust -- and i think rightly -- in our system of rule of law in appreciating that judges are aware of the things that might influence them and understand that they have an obligation to ensure that their decisions are not based on their personal feelings, but based on the law. >> what do you think justice clarence thomas, who also has written about his experiences with affirmative action, and he uses the words "humiliating" when he describes his experience. it's the polar opposite of your experience. why do you think he has a completely different experience? >> was it? i mean, my book talks about the negative aspects of affirmative action, the stereotypes, the feelings -- and i use the word in my book -- of being expected to feel shame. >> and you engage people. you don't seem ashamed. you took them on. you explained, here is why you are wropg. >> well, that's because that's what i came out of the experience with, and i want people to understand that there's a flip side to shame. >> do you think you ask too many questions in the court? i mean,
having arrived at the platform, greeting both of his daughters and his wife and mother-in-law. you see behind him, there is vice president biden, chuck schumer, chair of the inaugural committee is the first person we'll hear from and call proceedings to order. and then it unfolds like the greatest graduation ceremony ever. >> rachel, there's a moment when the new president takes over, like when reagan took over from carter, when the chief of secret service walks behind one guy to the other guy, it is pretty creepy. it is pretty creepy when you're the guy losing protection, but nicely enough, it will be the same guy there. >> jerry ford was the first president who upon leaving office from the inauguration of the new president, jimmy carter, decided to leave by helicopter, seen as a rather odd way to leave on the way, but every president has followed that tradition. it is a dramatic way to get out of dodge. also your last ride in marine one. >> you want to allow the indulgence just a bit. >> one of the things as yet undetermined for the second term is who exactly will make up the preside
sen ceremony at the white house. he has to take the oath on january 20th by law. >>> he will use two bibles for the public swearing in ceremony. this one is president abraham lincoln's bible when he was sworn in, in 1861. he will use martin luther king jr. personal bible. it has extra significance in this inauguration because it's happening on the federal holiday that honors the civil rights leader. both bibles will be stacked on top of each other. in the first inauguration, the president used the lincoln bible as well. martin luther king jr.'s bible, it was his traveling bible when he would go places to make speeches. he would take that bible with him. he'd be able to study from that bible and pull verses if he wanted to insert things into speeches. >> how is that having your hand on the bible used by lincoln and martin luther king jr. >> absolutely. >> the first family observed martin luther king jr. day on saturday with a day of service, of course. >> with thousands of others. >>> if you're planning to go to the national mall, plan on leaving plenty of extra time. >> you're going
ahead and enforce the laws on the books, they've been pushing for that all along and they like that and plus, it was a couple of weeks ago, where wayne lapierre was excoriated on the airwaves for saying how dare him coming out and saying we should have more police officers or armed personnel in the schools. and now the president of the united states, in his initiatives have suggested that as well to put some more school resource people in the schools. so, that goes along with the nra as well. >> brian: right now we're waiting for the swearing-in ceremony nor vice-president joe biden to get underway, they're running a little late and we'll bring it to you live when it happens, even if you're in the middle of at pocket chair ad. does this look like a threat? a five-year-old suspended fr kindergarten because of this? we report you decide. >> looks like a hair dryer.

go to commercial break, let's take a look. there you see the -- the president's mother-in-law. gloria, they will be making their way here to -- to the capitol. as the -- president's aides get ready to get in the various cars. what part of the white house is this? >> i think we are looking right now at the north door. the president has been attending a coffee with congressional leaders, with senate leader mitch mcconnell. speaker boehner and congressman eric cantor. i confirmed that. with each of their offices. a nice bipartisan tradition and good way to kick off a new term. those of you discussing he does not do enough socializing with leaders, here he is doing just that. he's been with -- the wives, vice president biden and his wife has been there as has the first lady. they will then head in the motorcade and make their way up here to the capitol where they will go into a hold for about an hour before the president speaks. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the
